Genealogy Notes
by Michael R. Bowlin

George Hugh Gaston was born in Texas.    He married Lucy Collins about 1903 in Texas, possibly in Henderson County.    The couple had four children:  John Collins Gaston, born about 1904, George Hugh Gaston, Jr., born about 1907, Isabella Gaston born about 1909 and William “Billy” Gaston born about 1911.   All were born in Dallas County.

 

George’s parents were John Gaston and Betsy (Miller) Gaston.  It’s probable that they were related to William Henry Gaston who helped found the city of Dallas.   William Henry was born in Alabama in 1840 and died in Dallas in 1927.

 

In the 1900 Dallas County census, George was listed as an owner and builder of carriages.  On his death certificate his occupation was given as “car dealer and inventor”.      He died in San Antonio and had a private burial at his ranch on Cypress Creek Road in Kerr County.
